BJP President Amit Shah today has strongly defended Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who is contesting as BJP candidate from Bhopal against Congress senior leader Digvijay Singh. He accused that she was framed in false charges and termed as Hindu terror.
Addressing media in Kolkatta, he recalled that when the case went to court, it was proved that there was no basis to it. Besides Pragya Thakur, Shah also referred to Swami Aseemanand and said that the latter was also framed in a false case with others. “Where are the real culprits of Samjhauta blast? Who let them go,” assured Shah.
He also made a veiled attack on West Bengal CM and Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee, claiming that the trends after the first two phases of the Lok Sabha elections 2019 show that the people of Bengal have voted for the party that will protect the country.
“Mamata Banerjee’s nervousness is clear now after two phases of polls. She is blaming the EC, remembering democracy, denying permission to our leaders’ helicopters. Due to low turn out at her rallies, she is resorting to road shows,” said Shah.
He added,”Mamata di says this is not Bengal’s election but Delhi’s. Yes that’s true but its most important for the people of Bengal.” Shah also asked Banerjee to clear her stand on separate PM in Kashmir and if she supports the scrapping of Section 370.
Shah also urged voters to come out and exercise their franchise. “Under the surveillance of EC, peaceful and fair elections will be carried out. I want to urge the villagers to come out in huge numbers. It’s high time they stand against TMC’s misrule,” Shah asserted.
